    I'm sure you guys have probably seen this place by now, but I thought I'd share it anyhow... Worst case I get called a Glen :p

    Basically, Textamerica is a mobile blogging site, take pictures and email them to a predefined address and they'll appear online within seconds... along with any title, caption and blog text you include.

    not mine, but a good example

    If anyone is interested in this technology, then many systems are beginning to support it. offers mobile and even audio blogging when last I checked, and locally hosted blogging utilities such as MovableType, NucleusCMS and many more also offer such facilities.

    In fact, with a little coding, it's fairly easy to write your own mobile blogging script, which simply retrieves your blogging email from a specified server, parsers it and utilises the data accordingly. He says :rolleyes: hehe :)

    Shall we be expecting TechNation news roundups by email from you then, Xavier? :p

    Kind Regards

    P.S. Your mobile(s) equiped with XHTML browsers should be able to access the current backed anyway :)

    Seems like a cool idea :D

    sit in a briefing, typing news articles as company x makes its announcements with a keyboard plugged into meh XDA - take a photo or two and before anyone else has even gotten near a PC it could be online... spinky:D
